The Colorado Roaring Fork Junior Team Tennis League is forming for another season of summer tennis.
“The Junior Team Tennis League provides juniors ages 18 and under the opportunity for organized team play on a regular schedule,” said Diana Cordova Elliott, who heads up Crown Mountain Tennis.
She said matches will be held at local facilities in the Roaring Fork Valley.
“The matches will be held on Fridays, starting at 10 a.m.,” she said.
Dates of league play are June 13, June 20, July 11, July 18 and July 24.
Tennis teams will be set up through three local tennis organizations.
Andy Booth at the Snowmass Club (970-923-0888) is one of the leaders.
Sue Geist of Glenwood Tennis in Glenwood Springs (970-948-7084) will lead the lower valley junior tennis players again this summer.
Diana Cordova Elliott handles the midvalley with Crown Mountain Tennis (970-927-4793).
The Roaring Fork Junior USTA League will provide regularly scheduled summer tennis, Elliiott said.
“It will allow you to meet new players and participate beyond the local level,” she said.
State championships in junior tennis are held in Denver every August.
